The winter of 1968 - 69 was a bad one in SoCal. The Espee Tustin Branch lost the trestle over Santiago Creek in Orange; the line was shortened back to Villa Park / Wanda afterwards. Santiago Blvd. bridge also washed out, as did Irvine Park. A big mudslide hit the fire station in Silverado Canyon, killing several people who taken refuge there after smaller slides ( a result of the Paseo Grande Brush Fire of 1967 ). I still remember watching houses floating down Santiago Creek in Santa Ana. I also recall flooding in Azusa Cyn., and Santa Fe's Redlands branch washing out near Mentone.
